VoIP vs. Landline Phone Systems: What’s the Difference?

If you have just started a business or are looking to enhance the productivity at your existing company, one of the first things you need to address is your communication system. Efficient communication is crucial in not only building client relationships, but also for making sure your employees are able to correspond as effectively as possible.

With so much technology available today, it can sometimes be confusing to know which system is best for your business—whether it’s small, medium-sized, or an enterprise. Traditional landline phones are a dependable option, but they also entail a lot of inconveniences and unnecessary expenses. For example, with a landline, you’re likely to accrue charges from long-distance calls. As a result, your opportunities to connect with potential clients or communicate with your company’s other satellite offices are limited—unless you want to pay the cost. However, when you switch to VoIP, you can enjoy added benefits without the high price tag.

How Does VoIP Work?

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) systems, or cloud-based phones, operate over your existing IP data network. By carrying out calls over the Internet, you have more capabilities and increased versatility in your communication methods. Instead of being limited to basic phone calls at your desk, you can hold meetings with multiple offices or connect from a remote location on your cell phone.

As an added bonus, investing in a VoIP provider now will save you money in long run. At ComTech Cloud, we charge a low monthly rate per user instead of charging per call. This enables you to communicate more often, more efficiently, and in more dynamic ways than you could with a landline.

Why VoIP Is Better than Landline

Landline phones are often regarded as a “tried and true” option for businesses because they have been in use for so long and are connected by physical wires instead of relying on a network connection. However, if any of these wires are out of place or dysfunctional, you’ve got a tangled mess on your hands. Also, since landline phones require so many pieces of equipment to operate, they take up a significant amount of space in your office.

VoIP systems, on the other hand, take up less space, save money, and offer a lot of advanced features. These include:

  • Unified voicemail and fax messaging
  • E911
  • Softphones or “App”
  • Caller ID
  • Voicemail
  • Call forwarding
  • Auto attendant
  • Voice to email
